Lana’s Spring Essentials

1. Wraparound sandals

A spring wardrobe must-have is a classic wraparound sandal. This season will see the rise of the ankle tie, whether this is in a heel or a comfortable flat for the daytime. The style is great because it can be paired with anything from a midi dress to denim, so you can get great cost per wear from the style and reach for it for many years to come. Lana Wilkinson has a range of ankle tie styles in our Spring 2021 collection and Afterpay makes it easy to pay better, in four interest free instalments.   

2.  Button-down shirt

As the sun comes out and the layers come off, we’ll be seeing the comeback of the button-down shirt. While this has piece has always been a must-have in every fashion girl’s wardrobe, we’ve seen it produced for the warmer months in an oversized silhouette and bright hues such as green and chilli red. Pair this item with a matching coloured short and style your shirt open with a ribbed tank and dainty jewellery for a quick and easy warm weather look. The Iconic have so many options for you to choose from when it comes to finding your favourite button-down shirt and you can pay for it in four easy instalments, interest free with Afterpay. 

3.  A dress coloured in a mood-boosting hue

The one thing that is sure to boost my mood during the warmer months is to don a brightly coloured summer dress for the day. Whether you’re working from home, or have an evening event to go to, a standout dress is the way to feel polished with limited time on your hands. We saw so many bold shades of orange, green and pink on the Afterpay Australian Fashion Week runways so don’t be afraid to seek out your inner maximalist and go all out with this trend.  

4. Straight-leg jeans

A straight leg pair of jeans is the ultimate piece for versatility when curating your Spring essentials. Whether you’re pairing them with a t-shirt and jeans, or to work with an oversized shirt, blazer and heels, this is an item that will stay in style forever. It’s important to invest in good quality denim, not only will these feel thicker and more durable, but they will last you longer also. If your budget doesn’t allow that, I would recommend tailoring them so that you end up with a pair that’s flattering and comfortable through many seasons to come.

5. Striped top or crew neck jumper

As comfort is now a huge priority for most people, a crew neck jumper is a great transitional piece that will allow you to stay warm, comfortable and chic all at the same time. I’d recommend purchasing something in a neutral hue to ensure that it will stand the test of time. Try styling your jumper with a trench coat and denim to elevate your next off-duty look. You can find your favourite crew neck at David Jones and shop with Afterpay to spread the cost our into four, interest free payments.
